Description

Robert McKee's screenwriting workshops have earned him an international reputation for inspiring novices, refining works in progress, and putting major screenwriting careers back on track. Quincy Jones, Diane Keaton, Gloria Steinem, Julia Roberts, John Cleese, and David Bowie are just a few of his celebrity alumni. Writers, producers, development executives, and agents all flock to his lecture series, praising it as a mesmerizing and intense learning experience.

In Story, McKee expands on the concepts he teaches in his $450 seminars (considered a must by industry insiders), providing listeners with the most comprehensive, integrated explanation of the craft of writing for the screen. No one better understands how all the elements of a screenplay fit together, and no one is better qualified to explain the "magic" of story construction and the relationship between structure and character than Robert McKee.

Required Listening

All writers should at least read/listen to Robert McKee's Story. The 6+ hours were incredibly valuable to me, I've had his tome on my shelf for years, its sheer size continued to put me off. Over the course of a week I was able to polish this off and I'm wishing I had bought the audio version years ago.

McKee is a great narrator which makes the audio book fly by. His understanding of storytelling is masterful and I think most writer will get something from it.

Highly recommend it.

Good abridged version

Ignore S. Buck's review that states this is only 5 chapters of the book. It is the entire book in an ABRIDGED version, as the description states. It is just broken up into 5 Audible "chapters" that do not relate to the chapters of the book. Doubtful that this person actually listened to the audiobook.

In any event, it is a good intro to McKee's book, and may encourage you to buy the complete print edition for a fuller experience of McKee's teachings.

Great book

An essential read for anyone thinking about writing a screenplay. Filled with very useful advice and specific examples to back up that advice. I have listened to it 3 times.

My only complaint is that the book was not longer. I could have used even more detail.

Excellent

I found this book to be very helpful. In fact, after I listened to it, I bought it to have handy as a reference. This book can be difficult to listen to as it contains a lot if intricate information that is best absorbed on the page; however, the audio version did its good by introducing me to the book and getting my creative juices going.

Love TV Movies? Must have!

My personal opinion is that I highly recommend this book and have heard him lecture many times before. He explains in detail the principles of writing and the importance of structure. This book is good for anyone one who is a movie fan to someone that’s in or interested in the entertainment business, (not just writers, actors, producers, directors, agents, not matter the craft you use or where you studied. This book gives you a great understanding of the process of story and for your average Joe, you will appreciate films much more than you did before with a better understanding of what the author is telling you and better understanding of what the filmmakers, TV producer’s, and even actors did with the story and how they made it happen. He is very funny and he is intriguing to listen to. His former students are amongst the successful writers and others in the industry.
He is in NYC right now and has a seminar this coming weekend. Robert’s last seminar for the next two years in the states this weekend, so if you are interested and can or cannot make it get the book either way. He knows his stuff and its great to see Audible adding books that have real educational/practical/fun value. If you like film, this book or audio book is necessity to have! It is worthwhile and the price is great for the information you get.

My Bible for Writing

I've been reading and listening to this book since 2003 and admit to always gleaning from it.

Not the whole book.

This audiobook would have gotten a perfect score had it not been for the fact that it's not the entire book!

First rate!

I will be taking Mr. Mckee's lecture in LA in a few weeks and I am really looking forward to it. Now that I have listened to his book in his voice, I am even more excited about the lecture. This audio was excellent. He truly is the world expert in screenplay writing. The concepts and techniques that he mentions in the audio are crisp and exciting and I now feel more prepared, confident and skilled to begin my own screenplay. I am expecting the book soon and will review the concepts and graphs before the lecture, and I will also listen to the audio again, because I think it's worth at least one more listening session.

Search IMDB for Robert McKee

McKee's Story has become so popular and influential that it's easy to forget the the author has never sold a screenplay for the sort of blockbuster he claims his approach will help you create. That's not to say he's a hack or a dud, he certainly has experience in the story telling business, but if his magical insights were as spot on as his confidence would have you believe, he would be making a living selling scripts instead of giving lectures on how to write scripts.

That said, I think Story is the sort of book that ALL writers should read at some point. Fiction, non fiction, screenplay, and novel writers will learn some very concrete techniques to add energy to their work.

If you haven't seen the movie Adaptation, it features a fictionalized McKee.

In addition to Story, I recommend "The Hero's Two Journeys" it's another concrete breakdown of what makes a story work (especially in Hollywood) by two guys who DO have all kinds of writing credits.

Wow - so much here

I listened to this on a long car drive and by occasionally rewinding (actually several times so I could really get the point) I understood everything in this audio book. Several times I stopped the car and clipped and notated some points - it was *that* useful.

I loved the examples he used throughout and I especially loved the last 30 mins or so with the steps for writing from the inside out. I listened to that again when I got home.

I can't wait to get started!
